Achieving Protection and Productivity by Securing Privilege on the Endpoint
Information security professionals recognize that cyber attackers almost always look to exploit endpoint vulnerabilities, and many have taken steps to secure privilege on the endpoint as a fundamental part of their security program. By design, privilege delegation is often an all-or-nothing decision – meaning that users within organizations typically either have full “Administrator” rights or no administrative rights at all. As a result, business users and IT administrators often end up with far more privileges than needed, creating a large and frequently exploited attack surface. The trouble is, in the process of removing administrator privileges to reduce risks, organizations are likely to face a number of challenges.
This eBook will explore these challenges and offer best practices for developing balanced, layered security controls.
